FR3 Dash Problems

I have a 2014 FR3 25DS dash problem and wondering if anyone else has had this problem. I am referring to the main full length seam where the front dash panel and the main dash meet. Because the front dash panel is not fastened to the main dash along the seam, the front panel is starting to bow up in the middle where the two panels meet. The front half bounces up and down as you go down the road and the bow is getting worse. Is this something that is common with the design on the FR3 or do I just have a one of a kind? If it is common, has anyone come up with a good way to fasten this down to the rest of the dash to make it more ridged? Thanks for your help.

Yes I had the exact same problem in my 30 DS. I was under warranty and the dealer fixed it. I don't know how they clamped it down, but it is solid as a rock now. No more bounce or noise.

Thank you, I will contact my dealer, they have been great on taking care of any problems that I have. It's just a 3 hour drive one way each time I need something fixed. Oh well thats RV'ing.

Yes it's RVing. After spending 3 hours washing my coach today, I spent 1 hour underneath it re-securing the exhaust pipe back to generator. 3-4 campsites ago it un-clamped from the generator muffler, tore the support which holds it to the underside of the coach, fell off and I ran over it. Wouldn't have even known it if I hadn't got to check my site when I pull out like I always do. Always something, just like at home. LOL.

I just found the same thing today. Went to check the oil in the generator and saw that the mount for the exhaust pipe wasn't hooked up to anything up top. For now I just wired it up until I get proper strapping.

Now you have me wondering if I may have something coming undone. Better get under and check before I take it to the dealer Tuesday.
